    Fancy place to see movies before hit the cinemas , save some cash by buying in groups or combos

    They don't serve fountain drinks (bottles only), and only have pepsi products. So you might want to sneak in a bottle/can of Coca-Cola if that's your style.

    Adam Schoales · August 7, 2014
  • Mazen B.

    State-of-the-art building. Great movie screenings all year long, regardless of the TIFF.

    You can't really beat Sunday brunch on the patio after church, followed up by a matinee.

    This place takes a "movie date" to a whole new level. Cute location & building, and the Kijiji cafe adds a little pizzazz!

    Films as they're meant to be seen. From Chinatown to Melancholia, each print I've seen has been crisp and bright. No hair/scratches; pristine sound. Film is an art form, and Lightbox is its gallery.

    Check out the display of artifacts from the archaeological excavation of the first Toronto General Hospital. It's on the 4th floor in the lobby of the Film Library.

    There are two unmarked washrooms hidden behind the escalators on the main floor. Handy if the ones upstairs are busy.
